For decades, finding information on alternative treatments for tics has been next to impossible. There’s a widespread desire to avoid conventional drugs, yet people have not known where to turn to find safer therapies. This situation took a sharp turn when a group of cutting-edge doctors and determined families started reporting dramatic success in treating tics naturally. Sheila J. Rogers, director of the nonprofit Association for Comprehensive NeuroTherapy (ACN), began investigating these reports and sharing them through the organization. Rogers conducted countless interviews with patients, professionals, and families, and ACN sponsored a large-scale survey that resulted in exciting, new details on the causes of tics.
